WANT WANT WANT: a scarf, a hoodie, and a journal

September 22, 2010

Rags are riches: The folks at Recession Rags are focusing just on their button scarves for now, moving their non-scarf items — tailored pants, shorts, etc. — to a different brand that’ll appear soon. In the meantime, they’ve churned out some solid neckwear for Fall 2010 (now priced at $29 a pop, down from $50). And in case you need to be enticed, RR’s running a 4-for-$100 special, an offer we’re taking them up on. Check out the goods here.

Not that it’s stopped us before: We ran across these clothes from Airwalk during our US Open trip to NYC and have been jonesing for them ever since. (Native American print’s been done and done, but the fabric’s super-comfy and the price points aren’t bad.) Of course, we didn’t know at the time that these were women’s offerings — an important detail which we’re willing to overlook. Buy: Airwalk Southwest Hoodie, $40; Streak V-Neck, $26; airwalk.com.

Venus Williams and ALT strike again!

May 6, 2008

The superhero team of Venus Williams and Andre Leon Talley strike again, this time arriving together for the Costume Institute’s gala opening of the exhibition “Superheroes: Fashion and Fantasy” at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Venus came out in a Carolina Herrera gown with Fred Leighton jewels while Andre wore Giorgio Armani; both were shrouded by a red Chanel cape apropos for the occasion.

George Clooney, Julia Roberts, Anna Wintour, and Armani chaired the $15,000-a-head gala that brought out the A-listers.

Wintour wore Chanel Haute Couture (by none other than Karl Lagerfeld) — think bighorn sheep circa 2050 — while the men’s best dressed included Zac Posen in a blue velvet tux and hottie Marc Jacobs in classic black with muse Sofia Coppola in tow.

From the Telegraph:

Inside the museum, guests were dwarfed by 30ft statues of Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman, contemporary versions of the ancient superheroes sculpted in marble in the museum’s Graeco-Roman gallery.

The “Superheroes” exhibition opens with a mirrored illusion of Clark Kent morphing into Superman and features radical catwalk creations by some of the world’s top designers and comic book costumes from Hollywood blockbusters such as Spiderman and Batman.

Pride of place is given to the heavy-metal suit-of-armour worn by Robert Downey Jr in “Iron Man”, the new movie which took more than £50 million at the box office on its opening weekend. Dinner was served in the Met’s 15 B.C. Egyptian Temple of Dendur, with tables arranged amidst massive sculptures of ‘Kryptonite’.

Mr. Teller’s Borg + McEnroe - New Enthusiasm

The internet was abuzz after spoofs of Juergen Teller for Marc Jacobs appeared on this website. Entltled “Mr. Teller’s Borg + McEnroe”, the photos feature two guys dressed up as Johnny Mac and Bjorn Borg in the two icons’ distinct styles.

However brilliant, a Marc Jacobs spokesperson has washed their hands of this campaign. Fashionista.com wasted no time to uncover the folks behind it, correctly crediting the work to Thomas Larsson and Greg Hart of creative firm Hart+Larsson. Apparently, save for the publicity, they have no plans for these photos.

And here’s their idea behind the shoot:

Borg+McEnroe is something we’d been wanting to do for a little while now. We thought it’d be interesting to adopt two generally well-known personas, style them, identify them as Borg and McEnroe, place them within a popular commercial context (the Marc Jacobs display ad), and then turn them loose. In a world dominated by replication and automation, we wondered whether or not we could create an ‘authentic’ Marc Jacobs ad. And we think we succeeded, for the most part.

fashion focus: my fantasy tennis closet; shipley & halmos’ fall 2008 rtw

February 20, 2008

Tennis magazine’s Spring Fashion editorial reads like the storeroom of a Barney’s CO-OP: Shipley & Halmos. Trovata. Marc by Marc Jacobs, and Band of Outsiders.

The shoot’s stylist, Jessica de Ruiter, threw in some Y-3, American Apparel, and Superga shoes for good measure.

Fall 2008: Above are the pieces from S&H’s Fall 2008 RTW collection. Refinery29 checked in with Sam and Jeff some days before their show. (Definitely worth watching, if only to see their decoder ring invitations.)

Browse: See all the Alfred Hitchcock-inspired pieces here. But if you’re just ready to buy, then know that their much-anticipated Spring 2008 goods are now available for consumption.

murakami + louis vuitton + marc jacobs + serena

October 29, 2007

All the frivolous things I love came together at last night’s event hosted by Takashi Murakami honoring current Louis Vuitton mastermind — Marc Jacobs. The party was held at the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) in Los Angeles, where a retrospective of Murakami’s work opens today. (More info here.)

Of course, just like during her last visit to this museum (which welcomed the Beckhams to Los Angeles), MJ fan Serena Williams looked beautiful in black.

What do you think of her outfit? Tell us!

party #2: vogue hosts federer fete

August 25, 2007

Can I tell you how in love I am with New York magazine’s coverage of the U.S. Open thus far?

While Nole made buddies with a polo player, Roger Federer attended a party in his honor hosted by Vogue and Men’s Vogue editors-in-chief Anna Wintour and Jay Fielden. They threw the party at Wakiya, the chinese restaurant at the ultra-sexy Ian Schrager-designed Gramercy Park Hotel.

Roger was there with girlfriend Mirka, but he spent most of the night in the arms of Wintour, who introduced him to guests such as Diane Von Furstenberg, Vera Wang, Oscar de la Renta, and boys of Proenza Schouler (Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez).

From left to right: Wang, Jacobs, Von Furstenberg, de la Renta.

Throughout the night, NY had a chance to ask some tennis-related questions:

R-Fed on his favorite designer: “I like Prada a lot. I haven’t gotten much into the American designers yet, but this gives me the perfect opportunity to meet them all and get inspired by them and hopefully grab some more of their clothes.”

Wintour on tennis: It’s the only game she plays, her play is “passable”, and she plays at “Midtown Tennis on Eighth Avenue and 27th Street at six o’clock in the morning”.

And Fielden on tennis’ popularity in the fashion world: “I’m so guilty of liking golf — it’s so unchic. Why do these tennis guys look so good and dress so well even when they’re playing? Golfers are so schlumpy and awful. I wish I knew.” Oh, snap! (We like what Fielden’s done with Men’s Vogue btw.)

fashion: borg s/s ’07, bec hewitt = designer, stella mccartney f/w ’07, MORE MARC JACOBS!!!

August 7, 2007

Bjorn Borg s/s ’07 picks: My faves from the most recent Bjorn Borg collection… Top row (left to right): the Joppe tank, the Slip-On shoe, Luka tee; bottom row: Rustan jacket, Samuel scarf, and Custom bag. Scope out all the goods here.

Bec Hewitt branches out: The stylish wife of Aussie Lleyton Hewitt (and mother to their lovely daughter Mia) takes a stab at children’s fashion by launching her own line, called Bec Kidz. She’ll collaborate with designer Bruno Schiavi on the designs. (Herald Sun via DTL)

Vintage Gucci: Cut out the middleman and get your hands on an old school Gucci tennis bag on eBay. (Racqonteur)

adidas by Stella McCartney: Amid the frenzy of putting together an event to close out London’s next fashion week, Stella McCartney has also released the latest collection for adidas by Stella McCartney. The f/w ’07 colors are Bronco (a pink/brown shade), Dark Bronco, White, and Electricity (lime green).

Picks: I especially love the Track Top (top row, middle), which is basically a crop warm-up; and the Tank (bottom, middle), with it’s “delicate” double-strap detail. Of course, double strap means that it’s going for a layered look without the actual layers…

The Gym Dance collection, another adidas by Stella McCartney line, will make its way to the public soon. Check out High Snobiety’s preview here. (via DTL)

andy roddick’s hat, masha’s latest nike dress, marc jacobs at colette

August 4, 2007

roddick-leggmason.jpg

Andy’s Lacoste hat: Number one American (and fast food grubber) Andy Roddick has his fans hunting all over the country for his Lacoste hat and other gear. A gaggle of them at Talk Tennis figured out that a shipment of the AR collection will hit stores this month. (Tip: If you can’t find it on the Lacoste website, call a store. It’s surprisingly hassle-free to get items shipped to you.)

sharapova-sandiego2007.jpg

Keeping it simple: The seesaw year of Maria Sharapova continues at the Acura Classic, where she appeared under the lights in a simple black and white Nike outfit. The layers in the upper back were secured at the neck; it wasn’t flapping in the wind like her Wimbledon dress. (Racqonteur loved it, too.) And someone needs to tell Tatiana that orange doesn’t look good on her.

collette-mj-kl-simpsons.jpg

Bonus round: It made me so happy to finally see the August ’07 Harper’s Bazaar, which features the Simpsonization of major labels like Viktor & Rolf, Chanel, Lanvin, Jean-Paul Gaultier, and Louis Vuitton. They showed off the prints at Colette and the designers posed next to their cartoon: that’s Hottie McHotterson aka Marc Jacobs (left; designing for LV) and Karl Lagerfeld (designing for Chanel). See the rest of the HB layout here. (photo via Hypebeast)
